When I was in Las Vegas for WPPI, I had the awesome opportunity to participate in a editorial shoot/mini-workshop with photographer Victor Sizemore and Summer Watkins, stylist and editor of one of my favorite blogs, Grey Likes. The shoot was based around the hit TV show Mad Men, and was oh so 1960’s– with a little Las Vegas twist of course! We got the opportunity to shoot in a penthouse at the amazing Palms hotel and it was super awesome!
One thing that I found really cool about this shoot was that Victor asked us all to play with a more editorial style of shooting. Meaning, a collection of images and details that will give off a mood and a feel. Rather than focusing on making each shot a work of art, focus on the story and mood at hand. I really like this notion because at when I shoot a wedding I really want my photos to portray the mood, vibe, ambiance, and story of the day. So this little mini-workshop helped me see things a little differently and grow in a new way…
…and of course I love the images too! Hope y’all will enjoy!
